RPS International Photobook Exhibition comes to Impressions Gallery

Tue, 25th Oct, 2016

The Royal Photographic Society 
International Photobook Exhibition will come to Impressions Gallery on Saturday 12 November 2016.  Photobooks will be available to browse from 10.30am to 4.30pm.

This is the first international photobook exhibition, open to all, that has been organised by the Royal Photographic Society (RPS). Submissions have been short-listed by a jury of three with international photobook experience. The 25 that passed the selection, including a winner, second and third plus one honourable mention, feature in this exhibition. All books will be available to browse by visitors.

The Royal Photographic Society says, "The photobook has evolved to become an established art form, particularly since 2000. Exhibitions and festivals are now held in many countries across Europe, the USA, Scandinavia, the Far East and Australia/New Zealand. Most photobooks are about telling a story through a series of photographs, giving a reader an in-depth repeatable experience."

The winning entry is Hometowns by John Maclean, second is Entre by Arnaldo Pappalardo, third is Missing Buildings by Thom & Beth Atkinson, with an Honourable Mention given to Five Days in Northumberland with Doris by Jeff Hutchinson.
